Ajumma's rambler is currently on the market. Potential buyers have viewed our 1979 home and have left their feedback. It's basically all been a variation of "your kitchen is old as f*ck." The previous owners stained the cabinets a reddish-brown, which absorbs all light. Even on the sunniest day standing in our kitchen is like being submerged in a dark hole of sorrow. Thus, over Independence Day weekend my husband and I painted our kitchen cabinets and installed new hardware.
Our kitchen now has a clean, cottage-like feeling! Even the brownish-yellow laminate countertops seem cheery. I pretend we've moved to the beach and the ocean is steps from our door.
